Petite straps have 1.5 inches less padding in the shoulder straps. This enables them to be tightened a little bit more. This can be particularly useful for those of a very slim build.
Black Organic Cotton straps and lining. The width of a standard Connecta Integra is such that not all the stripes will be included on the carrier. Girasol Wrap Fabric is produced in Guatemala using traditional methods of the Maya Indians. Girasol wraps do have occasional weaving slubs and flaws – any small imperfection will be purely cosmetic and is part of the beauty of this extremely beautiful fabric.
The Connecta Baby Carrier is a supportive, structured baby carrier with convenient quick-release buckles, well padded straps, and a flexible, unpadded waist to conform to the wearer’s body. One of the great features of the Connecta is the lack of rigid waist band. This DOES NOT mean lack of lumber support. In fact – for many wearers it actually improves the support. Rigid waist bands on SSCs can often fit incorrectly which results in gappy wearing. The close fit of the Connecta offers extreme support for babies and big heavy toddlers alike!
The Connecta Integra features an integrated sleeping hood that is a seamless addition to the top of the carrier. It also has the clever ability to tuck right away inside the carrier, which also creates a handy pocket for soft small items when the hood is not in use. You simply separate the front and back layers of the carrier and tuck the hood away inside!
Connectas are suitable from 3.5kg up to toddlerhood. The wide base supports anatomically correct position for baby and optimum comfort for the wearer. The buckles make them quick and easy to use on either the front or the back.
